Lamborghini is sending a shock through its model range. The Italian supercar maker is set to add hybrid power to its three models – the Urus SUV and Huracan, and Aventador supercars – by 2024. This EV won’t be an electric version of one of its current models but an all-new fourth model in its line-up. This is all part of the company’s push to reduce thefrom its vehicles by 50 percent by 2025. Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann says the move to electrification is necessary. “Lamborghini’s electrification plan is a newly-plotted course, necessary in the context of a radically , where we want to contribute by continuing to reduce environmental impact through concrete projects,” he says.
Lamborghini isn’t stopping at hybrid power; it has also committed to producing an all-newduring the second half of this decade.

Lamborghini already has a very mild hybrid in the limited-run Sian. This supercar gets most of its 602kW of power from a V12 engine, complemented by a tiny electric motor. There are only 63 of them globally, and they cost more than $5m. He did say that weight would be an issue.
